Walking from Swansea Bay to Mumbles
Walk: SOC 12
Location: Swansea Bay to Mumbles
Directions: Find your way to the seafront, following signs to the Maritime Museum. Continue along the coastal road towards Mumbles, leaving the big Tescos behind you on the right. Very soon after you pass Tescos, look out for the first parking area by the promenade on your left. It is a sharp left turn off the road, passing under a height restrictor barrier. You do not need to go as far as Mumbles as the idea is to walk there.
